Frequently Asked Questions

“I followed the MA/MBA track at the Hornstein Program as a part-time student from 2012-2017. Over the course of the program, I was employed at Combined Jewish Philanthropy, the largest non-profit in Boston, and I moved from being a major gifts officer to director of next gen philanthropy to the Associate Vice President of Major Gifts. Brandeis, and specifically studying while working, enabled me to become a first-time manager and then grow to successfully manage a team of 13 staff members and take responsibility of $35M in annual revenue. I am forever indebted to Hornstein, Heller, and the finance courses I took at IBS for super-charging my career and my impact on Boston.”
